The Goodrich-Loomis Nature Camp has been operating since 1998. Based at Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area located just north of Brighton off County Road 30, our summer children’s day camp offers an opportunity for children to learn about the environment in a fun and entertaining way.

Each week, there are lots of opportunities to explore trails, check out local wildlife, play environmental games, create awesome nature crafts, enjoy stories, meet guest experts, and much much more. 

The Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Centre, built in 1997, offers spacious indoor facilities, offering relief from the hot summer sun and a place to do activities on rainy days.
